Will not accept more than 1GB RAM??
Posted on 2008-06-18
I'm a tech repair and have stumpled upon a problem I havent seen before.
It is probably just the laptop that has a faulty motherboard but Im asking anyway.
The problem is that the laptop has one 1GB DDR2 SODIMM Kingston RAM and the client wants to upgrade it to 2GB.
However when I put another 1GB RAM in the computer starts and shows the bios startscreen for 1-3 seconds and then restarts over and over again.
Nothing is wrong with the RAMs (have tested with many).
I have tried these configurations: (none worked)
1x 1GB + 512MB
It doesnt seem to be that one RAM socket is bad, have tried the 1GB ram in both socked, works fine.
Any help appreciated.
Toshiba Satellite Pro A100'
Intel Celeron M 1.4GHz
